The Great Brook What?

The Great Brook Run is an annual cross-country race, held on the 28th of December this year, which takes place half on land, half in water.

Over the frightening distance of just-over-a-mile, our epic journey departs the picturesque Cotswold village of Chadlington and within a few hundred yards has thrown down the first of many darkly challenging challenges as the course challengingly turns 90 degrees to the left to challenge our challengers.

The course throws up many more obstacle as it wends through a quagmire of distant muddy fields. However, the run gets its name not from the muddy bit, but from the wet bit, the bit that dares our heroes to come all the way home again in a raging torrent of water that is The Great Brook.

Survivors, for there are some, get to retire to The Tite Inn to warm their frozen toes by the fire, quaff an ale or two and regale passers by with stories of derring-do and dunkings, all the while admiring their medal gamely dangling in somebody else’s beer.

Want To Take Part?

The race starts from the Tite Inn, Chadlington, OX7 3NY. All competitors must register and those in fancy dress or otherwise silly attire, pay a £5 entry fee. Those dressed in running gear and looking competitive must pay £10!

Registration starts at 11:00 and finishes at 12:15 on the 28th December, and the race starts at 12:30.

All proceeds from this year’s race will be going to Friends of Chadlington School.

The Tite Inn will have an outside bar serving hot snacks, beer and mulled wine. The main bar will be open all day as usual and a full à la carte lunch menu will be served from 13:30 – booking is advisable!

Dress Code

You must be dressed. What you dress in is completely up to you, but sturdy foot-wear is essential. Gloves are recommended. Don’t wear wellies or a drysuit unless you’re a masochist.

Bring a dry change of clothes – House & Carriage are kindly lending us two of their vans to use as changing rooms.

Children, Safety and Medical Help

  • No children under the height of 4ft (1.2m) will be allowed to take part.
  • Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied AT ALL TIMES by their parents. Parents who run off in the search of glory leaving their children to fend for themselves in the brook will be publicly humiliated and asked to leave (sorry if this sounds harsh, but it has happened).
  • The Brook is cold, parts of it are up to 2ft deep after heavy rain. There are many hidden rocks and tree roots which can be a trip hazard.
  • There will be marshals at regular intervals along the course to help guide you provide assistance if required.
  • If you get injured and can’t see a marshal, ask another runner to summon help. A 4x4 is available to pick you up and medics will be on hand to administer first aid.
  • If you begin to feel the effects of the cold while in the brook, get out and call for a marshal who will get you back to the warmth. Thermal blankets are available if needed.
  • “By signing the registration form for the race, you agree to a waiver accepting full responsibility for yourself and any minors in your guardianship before taking part in the event. The full text of the waiver can be read here.
